Once the guys leave Sunday night to “go to work” (a concept with which I’ve grown increasingly unfamiliar), I spend Monday through Friday eating whatever they’ve left behind. And (hoping they don’t read this post) I have to tell you I live for the peace and quiet of the weekdays — and the amazing leftovers.
John Seiffer: “Regarding Gloria’s comment on food waste. 412 Food Rescue is a great organization in Pittsburgh — and is expanding nationwide. They take perishable food that can’t be sold but is still good and deliver it directly to people who need it. It goes to subsidized housing, senior housing and the like. […]
June is Pride Month.
Seems a little strong, because I think many homophobic men are scared.
They’re afraid they’re gay, and use their homophobia to hide it.
As a teenager, I was — and did.
But so much has changed since then . . . there’s so much less to be afraid of . […]
Suggested here nine years ago at $1.25, I sold most of my EMIS at $9.75 yesterday. Sometimes, patience pays off. Buy when everyone else thinks it’s hopeless — like SPRT last week? (I bought more at $1.65) — but only with money you can truly afford to lose, because all too often everyone […]
Here’s a seven-minute PBS preview you may find uplifting. I know one of these former inmates. He is a fine guy who, as a kid, made one terrible mistake.
As a nation, we could “do” criminal justice so much better. Here’s just one example — 22 years in prison, and counting.
Enjoy your […]
Hey, so I see BOREF dipped below $5 for a minute yesterday and is not much higher than it was 20 years ago when I first bought some just north of $3 a share (and first wrote about it a few months later).
You can read the January 3, 2019 Chairman’s letter in […]
It touches on our Middle East policy, Russia, the DeVos family, Blackwater, the Republican National Committee — everything.
And then consider the contrast.
Do you remember how outraged Bush 43 […]
Under four minutes. Amazing. (Thanks, Alan.)
I have a 1937 Mills nickel slot machine — a “one-armed bandit” like this one — that’s kind of beautiful but got jammed and now doesn’t take nickels. (Any ideas?)
This thing is a lot older, a lot golder — and still works, apparently!
WHOSE DEBT […]
I unfairly trashed Margaret Sanger last week . . . see below and please accept my apology . . . but first . . .
A money guy I know: “I can’t stop looking at Bloomberg’s 1963-2019 chart that shows the 8 times that the yield-curve has inverted. EACH time has seen a recession […]
Are you an Elton John fan? If so: Rocket Man opens today. I met him just once — the briefest of handshakes (disappointing, because there was so much I would have wanted to tell him) — but boy, is the movie ever unmissable for someone like me. Almost as gripping and thrilling […]
